CycleSport Victoria has released details of Scott Peoples' funeral following a tragic accident that claimed the 19 year-old's life on Friday. The service will be held this Friday, December 22, at the Shepparton Football Clubrooms, Deakin Reserve, Dean St, Shepparton at 2pm.
"Our thoughts are with Scott's family and friends whilst they cope with this tragedy." CSV President Klaus Mueller said. "Scott had a bright future ahead of him and to see him taken before he had a chance to set his mark, is just terrible."
Peoples was struck from behind by a four-wheel-drive while training on the Maroondah Highway in Merton, Victoria.
"This tragedy that has taken such a young life, emphasises the importance for motorists to keep alert whilst on the roads and be aware of cyclists," added Mueller. "So many cyclists are on the roads, particularly at this time of year, and we plead with all motorist to take extra care."
Flowers will be welcome at the service or, alternatively, donations can be made to the Amy Gillett Foundation.
